Brooke Hogan is lashing out about “lies [that] were told” at her brother Nick Bollea’s trial last week.
In a MySpace post, which she soon pulled, Hogan criticized the public perception of her brother. “Before you judge anybody, make sure you really know them,” she writes. “I promise you if you were to meet my brother he would give you the shirt off his back.”
Bollea, 17, is serving an eight-month jail sentence after pleading no contest to charges of felony reckless driving following an Aug. 26, 2007 car crash that left his best friend, John Graziano, critically injured.
In her angry MySpace post – where she lists her mood as “pissed off” – Hogan challenges testimony in the trial, writing, “A LOT of lies were told in that trial. Believe me. And it wasn’t from us,” but stops short of making any other specific claims.
Hogan soon removed her post, and put up another one in its place. In her latest blog entry, she simply writes, “I have the truth on my side. And the truth will set everyone straight sooner or later. PEACE.”
Hogan’s rep was not available for comment.

Current mood: pissed off
I know most of the public thinks my brother is some rich little selfish kid, but NO ONE knows the real story and I’m really pissed that the truth didn’t come out from either side. A LOT of lies were told in that trial. Believe me. And it wasn’t from us. John was NEVER home. He was at our house. ALL THE TIME. that should say enough. I’m not going to be out spoken right now, but If some s*** doesn’t start getting straightened out, A lot of people are going to eat their words for lying. I know all of the truth and I have back up. I never know how twisted this world could be but I’m starting to figure it out. And I’m gonna have to jump off my high road and tackle some people who are taking the low road. I know you guys don’t understand, but you will really really soon. Keep praying. And by the way, before you judge anybody, make sure you really know them. I promise you if you were to meet my brother he would give you the shirt off his back. He’s not “NICK HOGAN.” AND he’s not the person he plays on TV. People are so gullible nowadays.”
